In response to malathi selvaraj <malathiramya at>:

Please choose a better subject line.  The repeated "good <current time of day>"
subjects you're using have two problems:
1) It's not afternoon in my part of the world.
2) It doesn't tell me if I should read your email or not.

There's lots more advice here:

My guess would be that you're using a minimal install ISO image, and that
you're trying to install packages from CD.  There are no packages on the
minimal ISOs.

If you have a reasonably fast internet connection (i.e., cable/DSL) you'll
get more reliable results installing packages from FTP.  Or you can get
one of the more complete images, such as the DVD image.
